Lapras -- Pokemon X and Y Card Review

Lapras Pokemon X and Y Review
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Lapras from the X and Y Pokemon Card Set.  Lapras is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 110, it has a x2 weakness to metal type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a two colorless energy card retreat cost.  Lapras does not have an Ability, but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Seafaring, this move requires one water energy card and lets you flip 3 coins, for each heads you get you can move a water energy card from your discard pile onto one of your benched Pokemon.  Lapras's second move is called Hydro Pump, this move requires two colorless energy cards and does 10 damage plus 20 more damage for each water energy card attached to Lapras.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Lapras is a basic Pokemon with no evolutions, you only have to use this Pokemon in your deck if you want to use this card.  With that being said, this card is a must have in any water type deck that has a Pokemon that discards a ton of energy cards.  All you would have to do, is put this card into the active Pokemon spot, use Seafaring a couple of turns and get some of those energy cards back.  I could definitely see myself using up to 2 of these cards in a deck, of course you'll want to just attach water energy cards to Lapras so Hydro Pump can at least do 50 damage per turn.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 4 out of 5 rating.  In my opinion, this is an above average basic Pokemon card from the X and Y set.  The first thing that jumps out at me with this card is the high hp it has and the somewhat low retreat cost.  This card can do major damage pretty quickly as a starter type Pokemon in your deck doing at least 50 damage per turn if you're using just water energy cards and can help you later in the game by getting energy cards from your discard pile back onto your bench.  So if you're building a water type deck and in need of a basic Pokemon, this Lapras card is definitely worth a look.
